    may 29th is what it says when i look up the SKU# on in the database at my work. so wouldn't it make sense to release the update for the 3DS as well?

    Sounds reasonable that the update comes that day or the day before, not after. Now we have a more accurate guess as to WHEN the update might be...

    That's understandable. I wouldn't leak secrets if I was getting good hours too [​IMG]

    i seen the cards in a tote we had for stuff that was supposed to go out for the day and noticed the cards next to the farmville/facebook cards and was like ooops thats not supposed to be in there. so for my curiosity and wanting to end the "WHEN IS THE MAY UPDATE COMING OUT" i checked the street date for the cards to get a better estimate on when this is actually commin out.

    like dsi-ware cards, you buy $20 worth of points (2,000 point card) instead of putting a credit card into the system. after the ps3 crap i'd never put a credit into a gaming system.

    Didn't the PSN service actually store the credit card details along with the users account details?
    Nintendo Points transactions in the past required you to use your credit card each time, and actually the iTunes app store lets you register your card details with your account for quick app and music purchases.

    I'm personally not afraid to do it, it's Sony you're talking about. They're negligent, incompetent, miser assholes, cutting corners on security to save money out of their own best interest and not the users.
    Point is I don't expect Nintendo to hold the card details beyond the transaction itself, they don't want to use the iTunes model of quick purchases for bite-sized content.

    Speaking of content, I hope they up the limit of the activity log in the upcoming update, 128 games will probably not be sufficient space to register all of the downloads that'll be coming, after putting in over 70 of my old DS games.

    prepaid cards are nice, especially when you do not own a credit card (like me) [​IMG]

    I hope I can import those/the ones my local GameStop sells don't cost 3 times more than they're worth like they love to do.
